The first time that I met Pat Delfino, I was nervous, frustrated, stressed and had very much done all that I could on my own. Pats demeanor and personality immediately put me at ease. I left his office feeling as though I was his top priority and that he had my best interest in mind. I had no trouble handing over all that I had collected. I was no longer alone and the stress was no longer mine. He was always attentive in making sure that I knew what was going on in my case. My family and I were pleased with the outcome of this case.
Over the next several years I would occasionally call upon Pat to ask a legal question. It seemed he would take my calls or answer my e-mails without hesitation. He would either answering my questions him self or direct me to someone on his team who could.
The second time we needed a lawyer I did not hesitate using in Pat again. I was in dire need, suffering from tremendous pain and Pat and his team went above and beyond to make sure my case was handled quickly to give me the care I needed. I am forever grateful to Pat and his team for being a key in giving me my life back!

Mr. Delfino and Ewing Anderson were hired to represent my two children in a case concerning their well being and financial entitlement due to their mothers' addictive condition. Mr. Delfino had a true caring for the well being of my children, ages 3 and 6, and yoiu could tell that his main concern was for their security and stability. Highly respectful to myself and my kids, quick response time to any filings or questions concerning the case. I could honestly go home and relax knowing that Mr. Delfino was representing them and that no harm would come to them without an extreme act of biblical proportion.

Patrick and his staff were very professional and very caring about or situation. He responded with complete professionalism and expediency. We were very pleased with the outcome of our case and are confident he went well above and beyond the norm, and achieved a better outcome than was available thru other resources we had investigated previously. But chose Pat Right away after the first personally one on one meeting. I would highly recommend him.

I wholeheartedly endorse Pat Delfino. He is an extremely capable litigator in all civil areas including commercial matters and personal injury. His intelligence, experience and persistence serve his clients very well.
